Collagen is All It Claims

You probably think about collagen in your skin because the word comes up whenever anyone is talking about skin aging. It’s true this protein plays a role in the perceived youthfulness of your skin, but there’s more to it. Collagen makes up 75 percent of our skin’s support structure. Think of collagen as the frame of your mattress; it gives your skin structure and support…but what is it exactly?

Collagen is a protein found throughout the body, particularly in skin, bones, ligaments and tendons, teeth, and connective tissues. You can get collagen a lot of different ways, including a diet with protein, collagen peptide supplements, and creams. Collagen production decreases with age and bad habits.
